    Although we've been here on several occasions before, we chose to celebrate my mom's 81st birthday. The prices are reasonable, the food is great and their cocktails are fully loaded!! I have been to several other locations but this one is close to home and happens to also be my favorite. The staff is friendly and attentive and nobody looks at funny when you're being loud. This Dallas BBQ is definitely on my list of favorites places for casual dining with friends and family.

    With several friends we revisited after about 5 years. We had good memories of the food. Not this time. The ribs were scrawny and tasteless. To be fair the pulled pork was good as was the cole slaw. The selection of beers was pathetic. We wont be back. Too bad.

    I haven't been to BBQ's in over six years and it was the first time that i was meeting my girlfriend's seven year old daughter,so i let the ladies pick where they wanted to eat and they choose Dallas bbq's. From the moment we stepped in to the restaurant we were greeted with courtesy and smiles the service was good and the food was better.we really enjoyed ourselves and made plans to go back there really soon!

    I heard so much about the Henny & Sticky Wings so I decided to go for it. The wings were very, very good and fairly priced for what you get and the the drinks were perfect. I was glad I made a reservation because the wait was less than 20 mins to be seated. However we were seated at a cheap metal rocky table, the food came out faster than I expceted but our waiter after he took our order never once came back to the table to ask if we wanted or needed anything, I had to flag him downto come back to the table. Good customer service is not their strong point. Overall had a good time but will not visit this particular location again, but will go to antoher Dallas BBQ for the good eats.

    Used to frequent this restaurant when I lived on CPW & it was a great "go-to" place for good BBQ. Most products were fantastic! Went there Sun after the Museum of Natural History... what a difference. Corn bread is dry. Ribs & chicken very undercooked. My breast meat was still bleeding. Tempura vegetables undercooked and all stuck together like a ball. Our server Mohammed had to change it twice before they finally got it right. Onion was cold, at least a day old and dry. Crispy shrimp deathly overcooked and not edible. Our waiter agreed. Management is weak. Some people were screaming on their phones throughout the restaurant, annoying others seeking to enjoy already poorly prepared meals. Managers do nothing. Just a sad state of affairs :(
